Original Caption:

Gyrating Elvis Presley rocked 'n rolled as usual in his final appearance on Ed Sullivan's TV show tonight, but home viewers saw him only from the waist-up. These photos show the irrepressible "hound dog" starting a number in the conventional manner, then he starts tapping, and finally letting loose with those spinal pivots. Screaming teeners in the studio left no doubt that Elvis was all there, but all TV's audience saw was chest and sideburns.
